Tory AM Byron Davies meets with police and council officers to tackle stray horses issue
AM Byron Davies has met with senior police and council officers in Swansea to try to tackle issues of tethered and stray horse.
Mr Davies said he had been contacted by dozens of concerned city residents regarding the issue.
"As a result of the meeting, police in Swansea are to become more proactive and look at some of the actions taken in Bridgend, which include obtaining an antisocial behaviour order applying across the whole of Wales against the owner of some horses," said the Tory AM for South Wales West.
"Police there have also prosecuted horse owners on animal welfare and equine passport offences."

Mr Davies has been in touch with the RSPCA and spoken to Deputy Minister for Agriculture Alun Davies about funding for Swansea to help deal with the issues.
"I knew the minister had announced £150,000 for councils to tackle the legal issues and but it turned out all the money was allocated to Bridgend County Borough Council," he said."I have pointed out that solving the problem in Bridgend results in horses being moved west along the M4 to Neath Port Talbot and Swansea."
